A miracle has happened. A Goodwill has opened up within about 15 minutes of my house. Oh joyous day! Previously I would have to trek 40 minutes to take a gander at the Goodwill treasures. But those days are NO MORE! And even better….the new store is located right off my route home from work. So I decided after I spied the sign I needed to take a gander at what they had in store. I came out with a platter, two ball canning jars, and one soap pump.
I had been stalking this platter ever since it graced the shelves of Target. I loved the beautiful navy floral pattern, but at $17.00 I just couldn’t do it. Then the collection went on clearance, but the prices never got low enough for me to pounce. What a surprise when I found it on the Goodwill shelves for $4.00 – now that is a price that I can’t complain about!
In recent Pintrest adventures I have been obsessed with a project that involves ball canning jars and a soap dispenser. Can you smell a DIY craft in the future? The jars were $3.99 a piece. It wasn’t a great price, but I was planning to use them to spice up the bathroom and I didn’t know when I was going antiquing again, AND I had to make my DIY craft so they went into the cart too. Also joining the party was the soap dispense. It looks a little dingy, but I assure you it cleans up good! So for $14.00 I walked out of Goodwill a happy happy woman!
